YouSendIt Launches New File Delivery Service for Microsoft Office

YouSendIt Makes Sending Files as Simple for Office Users as Saving Files

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - November 20, 2008) - YouSendIt, Inc. today announced a new way to send files through Microsoft Office by launching a direct-delivery service for Word, Excel® and PowerPoint®. Available for Office 2003 and 2007, the service lets users send files of up to 2GB directly from some of the most widely used business applications in the world, speeding the delivery of various file types and creating a more efficient workflow.

"YouSendIt's direct delivery service for Microsoft Office is an integrated part of a larger framework we are building to help business professionals shorten their work cycle and simplify their daily activities," said YouSendIt CEO Ivan Koon. "This service speeds file transfers and shortens project completion times for YouSendIt users. We are rapidly becoming part of the world's leading operating environments for professionals in every industry, and integration with Microsoft Office is a big step in that direction."

YouSendIt's integration with Office means a more productive, more efficient communication flow, allowing users to skip a step and send files directly from the Office application in which they are working. It also allows businesses to avoid using FTP transfers or burning large files to a CD to mail via overnight courier. Files delivered through YouSendIt are secure and can be tracked with assured delivery, including delivery receipt, so the sender knows exactly when files have been received.

The YouSendIt service for Office delivers rich sending options, including:

--  File expiration control - Users can configure the amount of time a
    file is available for download and/or the number of times it is downloaded.
--  Password protection, certified delivery, return receipt - Advanced
    tracking and security features ensure that only the intended recipient can
    download a file.

The direct-delivery service for Microsoft Office complements the existing YouSendIt service for Outlook®, which allows users to circumvent e-mail size limitations and relieve Exchange servers of bulky attachment burdens.

Registered YouSendIt users can download the direct-delivery service for Office and for other applications at For more information about YouSendIt products, visit or call 1-866-55U-SEND.
